Kruger National Park, South Africa

One of the most iconic national parks in the world is South Africa’s Kruger National Park, and one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Areas of the park were first protected by the government of the South African Republic in 1898, and it became South Africa’s first national park in 1926.

The advantages that Kruger offers, in comparison with other safari locations, is a malaria free area with a wide variety of wildlife, among them the cheetah and the rare African wild dog, great infrastructure and some interesting safari options, like night time safari or walking tours among wildlife, of course protected by a park ranger. Timely bookings are needed, as this park attracts a great number of people at very competitive prices. Best time to visit seems to be May to Sep (the dry season or winter season in Southern hemisphere) as there is less vegetation and would be easier to spot the animals, however the park is open all year long, and surely you will have a few stories to tell back home anyway!

Attached are some pictures received from a recent visit to the park, hope you will find them inspiring! Enjoy!
